England vs India, second Test, day four

But, the situation has been completely different in the second Test as India were bowled out for 107 in their first innings. "To receive a standing ovation at Lord's is a bit of a boyhood dream".

England´s batsman Chris Woakes (R) celebrates scoring his century on the third day of the second Test between England and India at Lord´s, London, on August 11, 2018.

If India are to spring in a surprise after a dismal show with the bat in the 1st innings, Ashwin not only needs to lend his support to the pacers but also take regular wickets from the other end to mount the pressure on England.

The 29-year-old Woakes is playing in place of Ben Stokes, who was forced to miss the second test as he stands trial in a court in Bristol charged with affray.

The 20-year-old Ollie Pope impressed on debut but fell for 28 before captain Joe Root, strangely subdued, was lbw to Shami for 19 with the last ball before lunch. But the likes of Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami and Hardik Pandya manage to push the hosts on the backfoot with four of them back in the hut at the stroke of lunch.

With Woakes, the first of England's three bowling all-rounders, at the crease alongside Bairstow, India could sense an opportunity to expose the tail.

India had recalled left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav, who tormented England during the preceding one-day series, for just his third Test after dropping paceman Umesh Yadav, who bowled well at Edgbaston.

Anderson finished with five for 20, but he hailed the contribution of Chris Woakes, who took two wickets including the key... "For me I find it so much fun when it is like that", said Anderson.

The wicket was Anderson's 550th in Test cricket and 100th at this venue.

"I went from 60 to 80 pretty quickly and all of a sudden started thinking about it".

A quick word from Bairstow helped Woakes to compose himself and a pull shot over mid-wicket for three took him to the landmark off just 129 balls.
